I appreciate that there have been a few questions about making changes to folder structures but I have yet to recall this aspect?
I am in the process (having only done a test move of a couple of folders) of reorganising my folders, currently "title(or subject)_ day_month_year" into a new structure of base folders based on year i.e. 203, 2012, 2011 etc.
My test so to speak was, all within LR5, was to make the 2013 folder on the appropriate drive which by the way only showed in the LR folder tree after "synchronise this drive" then moving two folders worth of images to that newly created folder. Seems to work a treat
But my prime question is about Smart Collections??? I have made limited use of SC so far but have one of images for WIP for printing..........so will the SC stay synch'ed (or whatever term applies) if the folders the images are located in has been moved as described above???
I hope that makes and would the insight that all will be well before I get/go any further and move the (in their folders) 10,000's of images about
Edit ~ FWIW ~ I fired up LR4 and it 'reported' the images(folders) were missing or offline though the previews showed. I synch'ed the drive and they were all accounted..............would it behave the same if I simply moved everything within windows explorer and then re synch'ed the drive in LR???
So the outstanding question about the Smart Collections???
